Will these act as end points to the likes of Roon, Audirvana or HQPlayer?

Volumio running on a Raspberry PI lets you addin RoonBridge; this isn't a Pi. Acc'd to the Roon Community it is possible on Tinkerboard HW: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/roon-bridge-on-an-asus-tinkerboard/63815/15

 

You would think with all the effort they've put in to making this an "audiophile" device, they'd add a Roon Bridge plugin, so a "click" installs it. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS >SOtM Lan Isolator>Bricasti M5 Network Player >Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

One way or another. 

 

I'm a big fan of AS, but I must say this makes me uncomfortable--you will be reviewing a product on which you are directly benefiting from the sale.

I make zero money on the sale of new items. The sale of used items (our 1% commission) benefits AS by paying for writers, which benefits the readers including you. 

 

If you see this as a problem, that’s ok. I see it as less of a problem than manufacturers just writing us checks directly for advertising. 

 

No worries though.

Hello and thanks for your comment concerning Roon. 

For the Primo we have decided since the beginning to go  the Official Roon Ready way which is a better overall user experience.

Okay, but I looked at the Web page and it isn’t listed as Roon Ready. Does that mean it hasn’t been certified yet and will be in an update?
